We have a nerdy double header for you today! First, Niba brings on science writer Bri Barbu to discuss the actual science behind truth serums, where we’ve seen them in popular media, how they’re used, and whether they could or should work in the real world. Then Mariquita is back with one of her hallmark beautiful reviews, this time offering a feminist alternative to The Walking Dead or The Stand by Stephen King. It’s Severance by Ling Ma and if you haven’t read it, you’re in for a treat.
